A wonderful hike through picture-book landscapes on the new theme trail of Obergurgl's Stone Pine Forest. A true highlight for young and old! Fresh mountain air and lovely rest areas add to a unique experience. The trail crisscrosses the 300-year old stone pineforest that features information panels providing information on pine trees, local animals, etc. Alternatively, you can continue the hike towards Schönwieshütte past the rushing Rotmoos waterfall. Uninterrupted views of Rotmoostal await you. The "Rotmoostal" water strider trail travels past this superb Alpine area. Descend either through the stone pine forest or on the cart trail. #Zirbenwald
